Mediterranean Rice Salad is perfect in the heat of summer and very easy to tweak to personal tastes. It is best served at room temperature. We like it with hummus, pita, falaffal’s and a burger.

Recipe Notes

We created this salad using a mixture of a medium EVOO from the store – a Picual or Koroneiki is a great selection – but we also really liked it with our Basil Infused Olive Oil and just a touch of Harissa infused Olive Oil or Baklouti Green Chili Fused Olive Oil if you like a bit of spice. Experiment and find your fave – you know my only rule is that there are no rules!
